After the success of Bombay Bramble last year, we were very excited to hear that Bombay Sapphire had released yet another variant, Bombay Sapphire Sunset – the newest addition to their Special Editions range.
Inspired by the ‘mellow heat and orange glow of the setting sun’ it has certainly got us intrigued to find out more!
Bombay Sapphire Sunset is the second gin to be released in the brand’s Special Editions series, following on from Bombay Sapphire English Estate, launched in 2019. Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire’s master of botanicals, takes inspiration from locations across the globe for the botanicals used in the range.
Notable Botanicals: Juniper berries, turmeric, Indian white cardamom, Spanish mandarin, coriander seeds, liquorice root, almonds, lemon peel, cassia bark, orris root, angelica root, cubeb berries, grains of paradise
This new summery tipple has been created using Bombay Sapphire’s original recipe, featuring 10 core botanicals with the addition of three extra ingredients: golden turmeric, Indian white cardamom and Spanish mandarin.
Tonutti said: “I have worked closely with our master distiller Dr Anne Brock to create a subtle combination of warming spices and citrus notes that truly enhance the complex flavour profile of Bombay Sapphire gin, providing a lingering warmth and refreshing taste.
“Bombay Sapphire Sunset balances the spices of the cardamom and turmeric together with bittersweet sun-dried Spanish mandarin delivering aromatic spice and warmth, just like those last rays of sunshine at the end of the day.”
Bombay Sapphire Sunset Tasting Notes
This delightful gin offers warm aromatic spices of cardamom and juniper accompanied by waves of florals and hints of bittersweet citrus, with zesty orange prominent in the background.
Bombay Sapphire Sunset is a versatile gin that has been designed for cocktails – making it ideal to experiment with!
It also makes a refreshing G&T – serve simply with tonic water and an orange wheel to garnish. Or how about a Sunset Buck? Serve with ginger ale, fresh ginger and a squeeze of lime – for a super tasty alternative.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on a bottle of Bombay Sapphire Sunset, it is now available to buy in major retailers across the UK, including Waitrose, priced at RRP £23. It can also be purchased online by clicking here.
